Bicycle Tour Company - PLATEAU CYCLING

Plateau Ltd - Cycling tours in Bulgaria and Romania

Company History

The bicycle tour company was found at the beginning of year 2008 by one of the official leaders Deyan Iliev Kateliev being known for his profound knowledge in history and geography. By actively participating in The Bulgarian society for the protection of birds, the leader introduced not only the historical and cultural heritage of Bulgaria but also the bird watching opportunities in our tours.

The three other members joined the team taking part in the later research and exploration of the tour paths and the organization activities required to fulfill your expectations and comfort at all times during the tours.

During the year 2009 and 2010 the present status of the Bulgarian world heritage and the condition of the routes have been physically confirmed with the support of many close friends by cycling.

Happily at the middle of 2010, the Plateau Ltd has been registered and the official web site PLATEAU CYCLING completed. Since then we operate the different bicycle tours with clients, being the first to introduce cycling tours in the whole North Eastern Bulgaria and some parts of Romania


Plateau Cycling Center

In 2010, Lonely Planet placed Bulgaria under 5th place on its top 10 list of travel destinations for 2011. Plateau Cycling Center is placed in the village of Nikolaevka which is a starting point of our tours. The village is in the region of Varna, lying in the center of southern Dobruja Plateau at an altitude of about 300 m. Our bicycle tour company info center is 25 km away from Varna International Airport. Nikolaevka is far away from the busy roads and its surroundings offer excellent dirt roads and greenways leading to distant places. These byways are known as “dobrujanski asphalt” thanks to their relatively hard surface due to the dark boroll soil, low precipitation and windy conditions. As you start cycling some of these dirt roads you are immediately embraced by the wildlife environment. The church Saint Atanas built in 1847 and the lakes in the vicinities are the main attractions of the village. Another interesting fact is that here Peter Deunov is born, who is the spiritual leader and founder of the White Brotherhood Society, an esoteric Christian teaching.
